Woodland on Ramsley Moor

Join us for a National orienteering event incorporating the YHOA Superleague and Junior Selection race for Interland. Ramsley Moor offers challenging physical and technical orienteering across open moorland and runnable woodland. A full range of courses are on offer from white to black catering for newcomers and experienced orienteers alike.


Ramsley Moor is located to the east of A621 (Sheffield to Baslow) 15km S of Sheffield (Here).  GR SK295748. 

From the North:  Take A621 S out of Sheffield towards Baslow.  At the Owler Bar roundabout take the 3rd exit A621 Baslow.  After 4 km turn sharp left (O signed).

From the South:  via Chesterfield then Baslow (A619).  At the first roundabout approaching Baslow take the 2nd exit onto the A621 towards Sheffield and then second right after 2km (O signed).

Parking on roadside verges as directed by marshals. We hope to park families with small children close to registration.

Terrain & Map

Ramsley Map extract 2

Open moorland, marsh and steep sided woodland with few linear features.  Technically and physically challenging.

CourseDistance (km)Climb (m)ControlsTechnical LevelWho is it for?
White 1.6 55 8 1 The easiest course and a great place for children to start. The course is entirely on paths and each time you have to make a decision - which path to take, there will be a control point.
Yellow 1.7 60 7 2 The next step up and a good place for teenagers etc. to start. The course will use paths but also other line features - Fences, streams etc.
It will also no longer have a control everytime you need to decide where you are going. For example you may need to make a couple of turns on paths between controls
Orange 3.4 120 10 3

Harder still, the Orange course introduces:

  • Choosing routes - e.g. should I go round the paths to the left or right
  • Using 'Point Features' as control sites
  • Basic use of a compass
Light Green 3.5 105 7 4 Harder than the orange.  There will be more route choice, longer legs and controls further off the path.
Very Short Green 2.2 70 7 5 All these courses have the same technical difficulty and are planned to be as hard as the area allows.  As the course distance increases the scope for longer legs also increases.
Short Green 3.0 90 7
Green 3.8 110 10
Short Blue 5.3 145 10
Blue 5.9 150 12
Short Brown 6.6 190 12
Brown 7.2 200 12
Black 9.3 240 14

Additional Safety Information

Come prepared to wear or at least carry cagoules.


Venue Details

Ramsley Moor was mapped and used for the first time in 2009 and was described on Nopesport by one well known member of AIre as "a real gem"

Open mostly heathery moorland with large areas of runnable woodland, dissected by a large valley.   There are few linear features.  If it is wet, spotting the best crossing point  for some of the marshes can be important.

Safety & risk

A comprehensive risk assessment will have been carried out by the organiser, but participants take part at their own risk and are responsible for their own safety during the event. If a competitor has a pre-existing medical condition that they think should be declared, please complete a medical form at enquiries. The sealed envelope will only be opened in an emergency.


SYO has an agreed policy on the taking of photographs at events, based on national guidance. This provides a sensible balance between the benefits and risks associated with the taking and use of images. If you are unsure about acceptable practice, please speak to the event organiser. Read our photography policy.
